Message for your athletes participating in tournaments in the USA


Please pass on this important message to all your athletes participating in tournaments in the USA: they should control that their Federation Code and Home Federation Athlete EMS number are correctly registered in the new US memberships system. If not, they will get into trouble with their IWWF License check when registering to US tournaments. 


Control your National Memberships 2022 through EMS


Federations can control in EMS that only Athletes and/or Officials having subscribed a National Membership and/or Licence can register to competitions. The athletes/officials can be set as “Inactive” which blocks their registrations to competitions. Once they have paid their National Membership and/or Licence you can set them back as “Active”. This is a new, special procedure. Should you be interested for your Federation please contact Peter Frei peterfrei@iwwf.sport for information. There is no video tutorial for this function.




If you need more information about EMS please refer to the appropriate video tutorial which you can find on the EMS Home/Calendar screen or through the following website access https://ems.iwwf.sport/Legal/Resources .
